Has anyone any experience of getting their dress made? I have been dress shopping but as I am fairly fussy I have seen bits of one dress I like and bits of others so I am now considering getting my dress made to get exactly what I want. Any ideas roughly what the cost is to get a dress made? Also does anyone have details of a good dressmaker in Munster?

I had the same problem so decided to get my dress made...and I'm so glad I did. I am getting exactly what I want, and the option is there to change whatever I don't like as the time gets closer. For what I wanted the price was between €1300 and €2000 depending on the amount of detail and embroidery. Mine is in Dublin, so wouldn't be much use to you...sorry :wv
